Misfiring visitors to struggle

Athletic are badly out of form and with them missing arguably their two most dangerous players there is little reason to think they can cause Atletico problems. Los Rojiblancos in recent weeks have been grinding out victories while keeping things extremely tight and their last seven wins prior to Thursday's Europa League win in Copenhagen have come without conceding. 

Tips and predictions

Atletico to win without conceding is priced at 5/6 (1.83) and looks extremely tempting given the hosts' form and the visitors' absentees. Another option could be backing a home win and under 3.5 goals in the game at 4/5 (1.80) which has paid out in 13 of their 15 league victories this term.
